Laliga president Javier Tebas appeared on the special El Partidazo #VolverEsGanar at Movistar (LaLiga broadcaster in Spain) on Monday to discuss the return of Laliga clubs to training, saying that “we need to adapt to the circumstances, very difficult circumstances , not only for football, but also for the whole country and companies. We work on health protocols, from the return to training until the start of matches. "
See the excerpts below.
In Laliga 2019/20 Restart date
Javier Thebes: "I would like it to be June 12, but we have to be careful, it will depend on many factors, such as the potential increase in infections, factors that do not depend on football, but on Spanish society. We have to be very careful and focused on following the measures of health. The virus is still there. With fewer infections, but it is still there. "
At zero risk during games
“The risk during games will be zero, or practically zero, because players will be tested – with only a 5% possible failure rate – 24 hours before. During the game … there is a university study by the Danish and German Ministries of Health that calculated how long a player is less than a meter away from another during a football match. Of the 22 players on the field, the maximum time that one would spend a meter away is 67 seconds, not face to face. For the virus to be transmitted, they need to be in that proximity for more than 15 minutes, and it will not happen. "
In the LaLiga SmartBank
“Both leagues will be restarted at the same time. LaLiga SmartBank will play the promotion's playoffs under the same conditions as always. We need to finish our national competitions before July 31, if possible, and then European competitions in August. As the LaLiga SmartBank teams are not competing in European competitions, we can enjoy and play the first week of August, depending on when we start the next season. "
About new mail transmission features
"We are working together with national and international broadcasters on how to watch football, avoiding empty stands, the echo. We hope to have some solid plans this week. We are also conducting virtual and acoustic tests. I don't want to say anything, since we will not be able to have fans in stadiums, but the alternatives will be very interesting and innovative when it comes to football broadcasts. Things will change, we can move the cameras to generate new angles, for example. Not having fans in the stadium is a tragedy, but we will take advantage of the the situation to ensure that those who watch at home can enjoy football as much as possible. ”
In the results of medical examinations
“We expected between 25 and 30 positive cases, based on statistics. The Bundesliga scored 10 positive points from around 1,700 tests. We calculated our estimate using this number and also the overall coronavirus rate in Spain, which is slightly higher than in Germany. This is good news for the football industry and also for Spanish society in general. We have clubs across Spain, and the reduction has not been the same in all areas, but in many parts of the country the number of cases is now very low. "
In LaLiga every day
"When LaLiga restarts, there will be football every day. That's the idea, football every day so that we can finish the competition.
About what happened in Germany shouldn't happen
"We never considered the idea of not finishing the season. What happened in Germany cannot happen and, moreover, it will not happen. It is impossible for a club to have five positive cases at the same time. If that happens, it is due to negligence or not adhere to the health protocol ".
